Heart Felt Heart Stone and Legislative Reception

by Tina Z. on Tuesday, April 1, 2014

A young volunteer whose life was saved by numerous community members when she suffered multiple cardiac arrests during and after an Essex swim meet is now giving back to help others.

Payton Jones of Vergennes will be honored at the American Heart Association's Legislative Reception from 4:30-6pm on April 10th at the Statehouse in Montpelier. Payton has created Hopeful Heart Stones that she sells to raise money for the American Heart Association and get Vermonters to cherish the heart and life they have.

Each stone comes with the following message:

Little Hearts Hold Big Hopes

"This Hopeful Heart Stone is for you to carry
in your pocket or purse as a reminder to cherish
each day and to be thankful for all of the things
in your life. When things get tough, remember to
reach inside your heart and look for hope to pull you through."

Come to our reception, support our advocacy priorities, meet Payton, and pick up a stone. It'll help your heart and others!
